HIMSA enters the studio today (April 23rd) to begin recording their highly anticipated Century Media Records debut. The group will track the drums, bass and guitars with Steve Carter (who produced the Courting Tragedy and Disaster album); DEVIN TOWNSEND (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD) will be tracking vocals and the renowned Tue Madsen (DARK TRANQUILLITY, KATAKLYSM) handling mixing duties. The album is currently set for a late August release.

Derek Harn (bass) states: "The new album draws from the strengths of our last two records, Courting Tragedy and Disaster and Hail Horror, but this is an entirely new chapter for HIMSA and our fans. Sammi Curr (guitars) wrote a lot of the music for Courting, and Kirby Johnson (guitars) wrote most of the tracks on Hail Horror (when Sammi wasn't in the band), so the two of them have joined forces to craft a whole new level of rage. We're looking at about 10 or 11 songs right now, and are extremely proud of them.

"We are stoked to be collaborating with the aural assault team of Steve Carter, Devin Townsend and Tue Madsen. These are guys we trust and respect. We worked with Steve on Courting. We did Hail Horror with Tue. Devin is the new factor in all of this. He's doing the vocal tracking, and we're looking forward to his searing, manic, vocal skills giving new dimension to Pettibone's throaty mayhem.

"This album will be an evolution of everything people have grown to expect and respect from our enduring and grumpy metal band, with a few new twists. We're older, but we're wiser and faster than ever. We can't wait to see our fans around the globe this fall. Till then, stay true and keep the horns raised high."
